Many members of Malverne High School’s Class of 2019 visited their younger peers the last week of school to offer inspiration. Dressed in caps and gowns, the graduates walked through the halls of Maurice W. Downing Primary School and Davison Avenue Intermediate School for the first time to the applause and cheer of students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Both staff members and students congratulated them on their achievement. The event allowed the alumni, who graduated June 21, one last walk through their old school buildings and served as a goal for the district’s future graduates.

Bridget Ellis was a kindergarten student at Maurice W. Downing Primary School.

Not only did she excel in her classwork this year, but she was also a Girl Scout Daisy.

Summer Bucket Lists

Prior to the end of the school year, students throughout Maurice W. Downing were already planning their summer activities. As part of a writing assignment in class, students created their summer bucket lists, highlighting what they are most looking forward to doing over the next two months. Many of the lists included going to the beach, going to camp, swimming in the pool, sleeping over a friend or family members house and traveling for vacation.

Congratulations Graduates!

Downing Makes Biggest Donation

Downing Makes Biggest Donation
Throughout the school year, members of the Maurice W. Downing Primary School’s Student Council, along with the school’s Ronald McDonald Committee, have been raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House. Part of the Downing Cares initiative to promote kids helping kids, Student Council held fundraisers such as face painting, seasonal treat sales and a family fun night to assist in their fundraising efforts. As a result, the school was able to make their biggest donation ever to the organization. Members of Student Council and the committee members including Mrs. Robles, Mrs. Smyth and Mrs. Correia, visited the Ronald McDonald House in June to present their check for $8,500 to the organization. Thank you to all in the community who donated to these efforts.

As part of a morning orientation program, parents and families of incoming third-graders to Davison Avenue were welcomed by Principal Rachel Gross and given an overview of what to expect in their first year at Davison. While parents were receiving this important information, the incoming third-graders toured the building and sat in with a current third-grade class. The experience serves to bridge the transition between school buildings for students in the fall and address any parent concerns before the new school year. The orientation had been livestreamed, as well, for those who could not attend.
